Center's St. Therese of LIsieux Catholic Church hosts living Stations of the Cross

Large crowd was on hand Friday, April 19, on grounds of the parish

The Passion of the Christ was dramatized in Center on Good Friday with a living Stations of the Cross presentation by St. Therese of Lisieux Catholic Church.

The event depicted Christ's last hours prior to His crucifixion as he was ridiculed, flogged, chained and marched through the old streets of Jerusalem. The production was held on the grounds of the parish where Father Nelson Munoz serves as priest.

From Jesus being condemned to death to his burial in a tomb, actors and actresses staged the Living Stations of the Cross as part of Good Friday and Easter events. Participants were in period costume with the story being shared on loud speakers in Spanish.

The stops along the way represent the path Jesus walked along the way to his crucifixion.

Good Friday offers a chance to remember that Jesus was executed by the state for preaching a message of non-violence, peace and concern for the poor that wasn't acceptable to the empire of his day.

Each station represents suffering, insults, moments of support, and the intensity of the sacrifice that Christians believe Jesus undertook for human salvation.
